Manchester United v Derby County

When you look at the name Jesse Lingard on the Manchester United roster, next to guys like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, he's just an afterthought.

Pogba was off target with a ninth-minute curler while Rashford was similarly wide from an ambitious effort with 17 minutes on the clock.

Pogba tried to break the deadlock from a free-kick, but Scott Carson was equal to it in the Derby goal. Sam Winnall then dragged one wide of the United post just before the half-hour mark as the visitors started to enjoy themselves.

Scott Carson pulled off another save to deny Jesse Lingard from the edge of the area before Paul Pogba trickled an very bad effort wide on the rebound.

Manchester United have booked their spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Derby County at Old Trafford on Friday night.

In the 24th minute, United earned a free-kick on the edge of the Derby box but Mata's effort was saved brilliantly by Carson.

Romelu Lukaku, who had replaced Mkhitaryan at the break, then had his goal-bound shot blocked as Pogba curled off target in a good spell of attacking intent from United.

Marcus Rashford was the guiltiest party in the first half with a poor point-blank header that he tamely nodded against the post.

Lukaku was next to head wide on 55 minutes, before Thomas Lawrence forced a diving save from Romero.

Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News confirmed both lineups, with United giving a start to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, while Marcus Rashford led the line up top.

Having set up the first, Lukaku got on the scoresheet himself by finishing off a quick counter-attack after a one-two with Anthony Martial to ensure United avoided a troublesome replay at the end of a hectic festive schedule.
